Leadership Accreditation


The LSESU Leadership Accreditation is an award which recognises students who have developed their skills as part of the LSESU community.

By attending skills sessions, organising new opportunities and ultimately having a significant impact on the student experience at LSE, you could receive an official LSESU skills accreditation and a bespoke award for your commitment.

There are three different streams, and four stages for you to complete in order to receive the LSESU Leadership Accreditation. If you’re not sure which stream is for you, then you can find more information below.

If you’d like any further information, then register your interest and someone from LSESU will be in touch to tell you how you can complete the Leadership Accreditation!

The Accreditation Stages

At this stage, you will attend a number of workshops and support sessions, designed to equip you with a number of different skills.

Stage 2: Plan

At this stage we’ll support you to plan a project, activity or campaign.

You’ll learn how to design a strategy for success, set clear aims and objectives and may need to win funding support for your project.

Stage 3: Deliver

During the implementation phase of your project, we’ll help you troubleshoot, manage others effectively and ultimately be successful in your goals.

Stage 4: Review

Once you’ve finished your project, we’ll ask you to evaluate it to determine its success and impact.

If you’ve already completed stages 1 to 3 of the LSESU Leadership Accreditation, you can submit your evaluation below. 

Note that you can only submit the form once, so we suggest that you draft the document in another program such as word or pages.
